Topic tags/keywords: wormy chesnut

chestnut pic: I have been getting some nice old wormy chestnut if any one is interested. These were salvaged from century old barns in the mountains of WNC. I try to get the beams and other thick stuff so I can plane them down nice, but I got quite a bit of it now. These trees were virtually wiped out in the 20’s and 30’s by the chestnut blight, which killed almost every wild growing tree, and are no longer milled. I have found that they clean up very nice and add a nice peice of history to my work. I have some peices that are only slightly wormy and others that are so wormy that they are hard to find a use for, and a bunch in between. many different sizes availible. The piece I’m holding is a nice 5/4 or so and 8”wide. Shoot me an email with what u need and I’m sure I could get it if I don’t have it on hand. I have seen prices around here for wormy at between 3.50 to 7.00/linear foot. I’m sure I could do better than that, or even an interesting trade.

You can’t open the pictures with out signing in to MSN and I am not sure anyone will want to do that. Is there another place you can upload them?
